The best way to counter rogue activity is with DNS-layer security that’s always-on … just like your end-users.
What can you do to mitigate the risks associated with “off-network” access to sensitive data and applications?
According to a recent IDG Research Services report, roaming workstyles are the new norm. Workers are dispersed, on the move and increasingly blending their work and personal lives. Unfortunately, they’re also bypassing corporate VPNs to get their work — and personal business — done; and traditional security measures are falling short.
Today’s workers are using laptops and other mobile devices for anytime, anywhere access to corporate networks and to conduct their own personal business. VPN usage is necessary but not always mandatory; and
end-users readily admit to bypassing that security precaution.
- 45% using their laptops outside the office at least 50% of the time
- 20% using their laptops outside the office 100% of the time
- 61% used online banking
- 51% visited social media sites
- 52% watched videos
- Only 16% must log onto a VPN in order to access the internet
- 82% have browsed the internet without logging into the VPN
Virtually all have gone around the VPN for one reason or another
